How do you time your chapters?


#1

Hi, I’m writing a story on Episode, and I was wondering how do you time your chapters?
Also, the first three chapters are pilot chapters, can you tell me how many minutes I approximately should write a chapter?

When I first started, I would time myself reading one of my favorite stories and then time my own and compare. But now I can’t be bothered so I just go with whatever.

I think episode length is a grey area. For me, 10-15 minutes is an ideal length for 1 episode. But it just depends what’s happening in the episode. Sometimes it makes sense to end at a certain scene for the plot, and if that means it only goes for 8 minutes, then so be it
